NHRC notice to DGP over custodial death


NHRC notice to DGP over custodial death

New Delhi, April 8

The National Human Rights Commission on Monday sent a notice to the state DGP over reports that a man, arrested in a vehicle theft case, died allegedly in police custody in Ludhiana.

The commission has observed that the report, if true, amounts to serious violation of right to life of the victim. “The commission has taken suo motu cognisance of media reports that a 22-year-old youth arrested in a vehicle theft case died in police custody at Janakpuri post in Ludhiana on Sunday,” the NHRC said in a statement.

The commission has issued a notice to the DGP, seeking a detailed report in four weeks. The commission said it had also directed the DGP to explain as to why this case of “custodial death” had not been reported to the NHRC as per the guidelines.

According to media reports, the deceased was identified as Karan, a resident of Prem Colony, Bhamia Khurd, in Ludhiana. — PTI
